Hi Eric, hi everybody,

My two cents about LiVES:
  - Though not officially in ubuntu, it is currently regularly packaged 
by the getdeb team ( Does it mean it 
can be easily suggested via REVU?
  - Note also that it has been maturing quite nicely recently, and seems 
IMHO one of the most well-maintained apps mentioned here.

I added salsaman (LiVES author) to this discussion.
